Jumbo Ravioli

Crystal ~


Homemade Ravioli takes a little time to make but, tastes so good! I have been making this recipe for many years. I got it from an old Good Housekeeping cookbook. I have included the pasta dough recipe that I use, but you can use your own favorite recipe. I have also included a meat filling for this recipe, but you can very easily make spinach or ricotta filling. Ravioli can be frozen and cooked at a later date. You can also adapt this recipe to make smaller ravioli.

How to Make Jumbo Ravioli


  1. Pasta Dough: In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of the flour and remaining ingredients. With mixer at medium speed, beat for 2 minutes, occasionally scraping bowl. With wooden spoon, stir in the rest of the flour to make a soft dough; adding a little more flour, if necessary.
  2. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-10 minutes. Cover dough and let rest 30 minutes. Meanwhile, Make meat filling or filling of your choice.
  3. Meat Filling: In a 10-inch skillet over medium high heat, cook hamburger, onion, and garlic until hamburger is thoroughly browned. Remove from heat and drain of juices. Stir in egg, Parmesan cheese, and salt. Mix until well blended; set aside. Make the Ravioli.
  4. Jumbo Ravioli: Cut the pasta dough into 4 pieces. On a well-floured surface, with a floured rolling pin, roll one piece of the pasta dough into a 15x6 inch rectangle. With a pizza cutter, cut the rectangle crosswise into five 6x3 inch pieces.
  5. Drop rounded Tablespoonful’s of filling on the 3-inch side of each piece of pasta to within ¼ inch of edges. Beat one whole egg in a small dish to make a egg wash. Using a pastry brush, brush the outside edges of the ravioli with the egg wash.
  6. Fold dough over meat filling, bringing ends together. Press all edges to seal. With a fork dipped in flour, again, firmly press down on edges to permanently seal pasta.
  7. Place ravioli in a single layer on clean towel. Repeat with remaining pasta and meat filling. Let dry 30 minutes. Meanwhile, make marinara sauce or use your favorite pasta sauce.
